Switch Point Socks

$6.00 USD



These highly textured socks feature an intricate cable and braid panel framed by pretty cable columns. The socks are worked from the top down and the left and right socks are identical.

Switch Point Socks were designed as a featured pattern in the Canadian Crazy Train sock knitting race. The photo shoot was held at an outdoor mining museum in Yellowknife, NT. Pit railway tracks and equipment once used to move miners, equipment and ore in and out of underground gold mines feature as the backdrop.
